gphoto2 for windows

Here’s a slightly more detailed set of instructions:

1. Download the libusb-win32 binaries and unzip them (it doesn’t matter where you put them)
The project homepage is here. The latest release at time of writing is here.
2. Install a driver for your camera. Assuming you unzipped libsub-win32 into c:\, run c:\libusb-win32-bin-\bin\inf-wizard.exe and go through this process to set up a libusb driver for your camera. You may need to uninstall these drivers to use your manufacturuer’s camera software.

3. Unzip my gphoto build file somewhere on your pc. (The latest zip is, here.)
4. At a Windows command prompt, run "gphoto2.bat –help" from the directory into which you unzipped the build. Have a look at the gphoto2documentation for more information on how to use gphoto.
